Bramhavar St.George Church

Help needed to re-build this church: This is St. George Orthodox Syrian Church, Karugundha, in Chickmangalur District, Karnataka State. It is under the newly created Bramhavar diocese. Around 32 families worship in this small parish. They are low income farmers, originally migrated from various parts of Kerala and now settled there.



St. George Church

A shed converted to a church

They are worshiping in this shed for some time now and would like to have a stable church building. A well wisher donated half an acres of land for constructing the church.

ICON volunteer Reji Mathai, Thavalathil (Neema constructions, Pathanamthitta) provided free plan and estimate for a small church. Current estimate is at around Rs. 22 lakhs. The construction of the new church has started since May 2011.





St. George Church Celebrating Holy Qurbana

The parishners and the vicar with their enthusiasm could raise around Rs. 9 lakhs through outside help from other churches and well-wishers. Church members are also pledge their time and effort for providing the unskilled labor for earth work and other physical tasks associated with church construction.
